The 2013 college football season begins in fifteen weeks.

Chris, Lee, Kirk, and Des might be 'comin to yo citay' sometime this year if you know what I mean.

As if you're not looking forward to the season already, here's my guess at the on-site locations for ESPN's College GameDay during the 2013 season.

August 31: Clemson, SC
Clemson vs. Georgia

September 7: Ann Arbor, MI
Michigan vs. Notre Dame

September 14: College Station, TX
Texas A&M vs. Alabama

September 21: South Bend, IN
Notre Dame vs. Michigan State  -- Contenders (Stanford hosts Arizona State, Florida hosts Tennessee). It's a weak line-up of games scheduled for this Saturday.

September 28: Athens, GA
Georgia vs. LSU  -- Contenders (Notre Dame hosts Oklahoma, Alabama hosts Ole Miss, Oregon hosts Cal) Georgia plays Clemson and South Carolina to start the season.  LSU opens against TCU.  If both teams are undefeated, College GameDay should be in Athens.  However, keep an eye on Ole Miss because if the Rebels defeat  Vanderbilt on ESPN's Thursday night season-opener and win at Texas a couple of weeks later, then the Alabama-Ole Miss game will be hyped.  The Rebels surprised many by the way they performed last season in Tuscaloosa.  South Bend is also a possibility.  The Irish probably have to defeat Michigan and Michigan State before College Gameday could choose South Bend.

October 5: Palo Alto, CA
Stanford vs. Washington -- Contender (Northwestern hosts Ohio State, Oklahoma hosts TCU)

October 12: Baton Rouge, LA
LSU vs. Florida  -- Contenders (Oklahoma vs. Texas, Ole Miss hosts Texas A&M, Washington hosts Oregon)

October 19: Oxford, MS
Ole Miss vs. LSU  -- Contenders (Stanford hosts UCLA, Clemson hosts FSU)

October 26: Columbus, OH
Ohio State vs. Penn State  -- Contender (TCU hosts Texas)

November 2: Colorado Springs, CO
Air Force hosts Army

November 9: Tuscaloosa, AL
Alabama vs. LSU

November 16: Austin, TX
Texas vs. Oklahoma State  -- Contender (USC hosts Stanford)

November 23: Palo Alto, CA
Stanford vs. Cal  -- Contender (LSU hosts Texas A&M)

November 30: Ann Arbor, MI
Michigan vs. Ohio State  -- Contender (Stanford hosts Notre Dame)
